Our racers are getting back into shape. Most riders finished the night
without any major hang-ups, although we did have a few minor bumps and
bruises and the guys are trying to get their bikes in shape. But you
can sure tell the season is well under way with the fantastic racing we
saw tonight. We were able to run a championship format again this evening
with our 16 riders.
Shawn "Hurricane" Hurley got the gate in race one, but Don "The Target"
Foster overpowered everyone and took the win. King Kenny Pieper kept
poppin' wheelies on the straight-aways in race two, and there was a good
contest between him and Rob "Fire" Ball. Ball got the win. Race three
was lead by "Up"Chuck Johansen until turn three, when Pat "The Rat" Litt
passed on the inside and continually pulled away for the win. Race four
was battled out between Bouncin' Bobby Richards and Tom "Kamikaze Kid"
Kern, but Kern pulled forward.
The first start of race one had Allen "X Man" Williams hit the dirt in
turn 3 and Kern ran up the wall in turn 4. On the restart, Kern took
off, running from that wall, and got the win. Race two King Pieper got
the gate and smoked Litt, handing Litt his first defeat for the season.
Foster kept kissing the tape in race three, and dueled with Johansen.
Johansen went wide and Foster took advantage to win this one. In race
four, Richards passed Hurley on the inside and Ball took the race by a
King Pieper looped his bike on the start and suffered a mild concussion.
Johansen went down in turn two and Cowboy Pieper took the win. After
this race we moved our riders down a spot, as the pole was too tacky to
have safe starts. Gene "The Dancin' Machine" took first by half a track
in race two. Race three was led cleanly by Ball. Kern led race four for
three laps, until Litt saw his opportunity and went outside to pass Kern
on turn four for the win.
Cowboy Pieper got the gate and the win in race one.
Jay "Do or Die" Gruetzmacher went inside to pass Rohr. Both Johansen
and Ball had bike problems on lap three, so Kern finished first and
Calvin "The Calvinator" Harrington took second. Litt was way out front
in race three, and Foster bit it in turns one and three trying to keep
up, maintaining his corner one/thee crash combo from last week. Hurley
got the gate in race four, but Harris pulled ahead for the win.
Cowboy Pieper, Litt and Ball were side by side in turn one, with Litt
and Ball pulling ahead. Cowboy Pieper snuck inside Ball in turn three,
with a finish of Litt, Cowboy Pieper, Ball, and Mann. Richards got the
gate and the win in race two. Kern got the gate in race three, but Petz
kept it tight and overcame Kern for the win. Williams led race four.
Hurley passed Rohr on the outside, but on lap three went down in turn three.
His steel shoe was bent to hell and wedged between Hurley and his bike,
but Aaron Kennedy from the Cracker Boys Racing Team came to his rescue and
saved his foot. Williams took the win.
